Wasn't McCartney in The Beatles, doesn't that allow him to think he's king of the world?

I am not sure whether I agree with him or not in this interesting debate but am I the only one that is getting worried about SR's paranoia about other species on here?

First of all, he worries about seagulls that are peering into his window and now he feels that flies are staging a home invasion and threatening his family.

I don't know whether it was his move to the seaside that did it but I am concerned that, within months, he will have gone from a strong animal rights advocate to holed up in his flat with a shotgun shooting everything that he sees moving in a crazed fashion

I think Paul McCartney's actually quite humble, given his achievements. I don't know what comments or actions people are basing these claims of arrogance on.

I always suspect in Mccartney a pretence of unpretentiousness. In an Uncut interview with Jon Wilde, conducted out at his estate in Arizona he remarks, when Wilde says he lives in Brighton, "I've got a house in Brighton! We could have done this in a pub there over a plate of chips." It's quite clear, however, given the difficulties had in arranging the interview, quite normal for an artist of Macca's standing that that could never have happened.

I wouldn't call him arrogant either, although his recent wish to have his name in front of John Lennon's when it came to the songs they wrote for the Beatles hardly smacks of humility.

I sympathise with that. Poor bastard has had forty years of idiots venerating Lennon while saying "hurr, McCartney, he wrote the Frog Song". It's one way he could redress the balance. He's only ever talked about having his name first in the songs he, erm, wrote. Himself, like.

It might mean I could stop having conversations like I did in the pub the other week with a bloke who claimed John Lennon was far better than Paul McCartney because Paul McCartney "could never have come up with a song like Back In The USSR." Nob.

It was McCartney, not Lennon, who carried The Beatles in their post-Sergeant Pepper phase and McCartney, not Lennon, who took a serious interest in avant garde and experimental music in the mid-60s. The whole John/Yoko thing often obscures this.

It's also worth noting that "Imagine" is just as banal as "We All Stand Together", but only one of them was written for children.

Imagine is even worse, if anything.

You did a good demolition job on that once, E10. Appealed to the Worst Kind Of Lefty, I think.

That's probably a bit harsh. Some good lefties like Imagine too - I just think it appeals to that part of the left that likes its cultural statements to be literal, simplistic and bereft of subtlety.

I was listening to the Neon Neon mixtape the other day, and what turns up in the middle of it, none other than 'Temporary Secretary'.

"Temporary Secretary" is a bit of a cliche, if anything. It was a staple of Electroclash DJ sets back in '01. Not that it isn't wicked, like.

Gruff Rhys and Paul McCartney have got previous: the latter chewed vegetables on Super Furry Animals' "Receptacle For The Respectable".

McCartney also did an ambient album under the name of The Firemen in the early 1990s, at the height of the ambient boom. It got good reviews, I seem to remember.

McCartney seems to have made a habit of non-carnivourous mastication in the public ear. He performed on celery on the Beach Boys' Vegetables, commendably putting vegetarianism where his mouth is.
